Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 4 days 9 hours ago

Greetings Langley Community, 

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I am reflective of my many blessings. Along with the love of family and friends, leading the Langley High School community is high on my list. I am sincerely appreciative of the support and partnership I receive from parents, students and staff. Our school community is the backbone of our children’s ongoing success.  

As we begin the long weekend to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, I encourage our families and students to disconnect from school and technology over the break. While I realize some students may have a long-term assignment due after the break, or are working to make-up assignments, I have requested that teachers have no work due the first two days after the break.  I hope this will allow students an opportunity to truly enjoy the holiday.  

May each of you find time to rest, rejuvenate and reconnect with family during the days off. I wish each of you and your families continued good health and many blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Kimberly Greer

Did You Know…Sandra M. Chafouleas, Ph.D. from Psychology Today writes “As a very unfamiliar holiday season approaches, we can still find ways to bring familiarity and predictability — and the sense of comfort that goes with that — with some adaptations to our family traditions.” Here is the full article that includes ways to adapt to this holiday season.

The FCPS Schoology team is looking for initial parent feedback on Schoology. Please submit your feedback here. More opportunities for parent feedback are being planned, and we will let you know when we know more.

Together We CAN Fight Hunger!

Calling all Cooper students and Langley Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors! Langley High School's PTSA is pleased to partner with our local food bank, Share of McLean, for its fall food drive. Food insecurity has increased in our community during the pandemic, and SHARE is supporting 50+ families in McLean with food supplies twice a week. Share what you CAN to help keep SHARE's shelves stocked!

On Monday, December 7th from 10:30 am - 2:30 pm in the LHS parking lot, Langley and Cooper students are invited to bring non-perishable, unexpired food items to their Class' designated drop-off station.  Click here to review requested items. In the spirit of giving, the LHS Class with the most participants and/or donated food items will receive recognition. Additionally, all Langley HS and Cooper MS participants can submit a selfie in front of the SHARE banner/truck and submit on x2vol for one hour of service learning. Masks are mandatory for all participants.

Parent and student volunteers are needed to help with this worthwhile event. Masks and gloves are required. Please click here to volunteer.

Langley High School's PTSA is pleased to invite your high school to participate in our upcoming free live webinar, "The Future of College Admissions," presented by Jeff Selingo, best-selling author, engaging speaker, and college admissions expert, on Tuesday, December 8, at 7 pm. 

Mr. Selingo immersed himself in the world of college admissions for a year to answer a question on the minds of many high school students and parents alike: How do colleges select their freshman class? The result is his latest book, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, Who Gets In and Why: A Year Inside College Admissions

In his presentation, Mr. Selingo will dispel entrenched notions of how to compete and win at the college admissions game, reveal why families have much to gain by broadening their notion of what qualifies as a “good college," and explain how the pandemic is impacting college admissions. The session will wrap up with a Q&A.

Please share this information with your high school community. Participants may register by clicking on this link: The Future of College Admissions. To submit questions for the webinar in advance, click here.

Online Instruction or In-Person Instruction (Any Adjustment DUE Friday 11/6)

FCPS will continue to honor family choice in the student learning format. Based on your experience with virtual learning, you can choose to remain all-virtual or choose the concurrent model of two days in person and two days online. If your circumstances have changed, we will try to accommodate your request based on staff and space availability. As we transition to in-person instruction, some students may experience a change in schedule or class assignment based on staffing availability.   You only need to complete this form if you would like to submit a change to the choice you made in the FCPS July survey.   We will honor the choice you made in the FCPS July survey to determine the setting for instruction. If you did not submit a survey in July, then your choice defaulted to in-person.   If your circumstances have changed, please submit this form, and we will strive to accommodate your request based on the availability of staff and space.   Your previous choice is indicated below in red font.   If you wish to keep your original choice, no further action is needed.

We will strive to minimize the impact of this transition; however, some students may experience a change in schedule or class assignment as we work to accommodate everyone's preferences.

Keep Your Laptop Healthy

Never leave laptops plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight.  It is best to always use laptops on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery, the operating systems and cause the machine to shut down completely.

Additional Tips:

  • Shut down the laptop every day after use
  • Use and store the laptop in an area that is free from dust, extreme heat, cold, or humidity
  • Restart the laptop several times per week.

Greetings Saxons,

We had a fabulous PSAT administration for our juniors yesterday.  It was great to see students and kids in the building. While faces may have been masked, the smiles were felt throughout the school. A huge thank you to our Assessment Coach Jan Dabroski for the countless hours of planning and organizing necessary to arrange such an event. A shout out also to each of the staff members who came in to assist with testing. This event would not have been possible without their efforts.

We also thank our PTSA for showing love to our staff by providing face masks and treats for faculty who were here for testing. The support shown by the organization is so appreciated by the school. We are fortunate to have such caring, supportive association.

With school closure, we have not had much to celebrate with sports. However, this week, there is phenomenal news to share in Saxon Country! Senior Kelly Chinn has been selected as the Rolex Junior Player of the Year and a Rolex First Team Junior All American. For more information, check out the article from Wednesday’s Washington Post. Kelly, we congratulate you and your family. We are so very proud of you. Langley is truly fortunate to have such a wonderful student athlete. The only thing which outshines Kelly’s golf expertise is his humility.

 

Kelly Chinn, a senior at Langley High School, named junior boys’ golfer of the year

Duke commit and Great Falls resident Kelly Chinn is the first player from Virginia to win this prestigious award from the American Junior Golf Association.

By Gene Wang

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/10/28/kelly-chinn-top-boys-golfer/

Please remember to set your clocks back this Sunday evening. May you have a wonderful Halloween weekend which contains only treats and no tricks.

Wishing you wellness,

Kimberly Greer

Greeting Saxons,

As we continue to enjoy beautiful fall weather, first quarter is quickly coming to an end. The quarter concludes on Friday, Oct 30. Please know teachers and staff continue to stand ready to assist each of our students experience success.

I need to make you aware of a temporary change related to the Administrative Team. Assistant Principal Laura Moore is currently on medical leave. At this time, we are unsure how long she will be out. To support students and staff under her direct supervision, the following changes are in effect until she returns. Mr. Robertson will partner with the Class of 2023. He will also support the Career and Technical Education program. Mr. Biernesser will support our Special Education department. It is our hope Ms. Moore will soon be back with us in Saxon Country.

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership.

Wishing you wellness,

Keep Your Laptop Healthy

Never leave laptops plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight.  It is best to always use laptops on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery, the operating systems and cause the machine to shut down completely.

Additional Tips:

  • Shut down the laptop every day after use
  • Use and store the laptop in an area that is free from dust, extreme heat, cold, or humidity
  • Restart the laptop several times per week.

Did You Know… As the shorter days and colder months are rolling in Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD) symptoms begin.

SAT Administration 

A huge THANK YOU to the administration, staff and students on their efforts for a successful SAT day! 

Did You Know...Hand sanitizers have been around for years and several contain a high percentage of alcohol. Please read labels and be careful what you are purchasing for your family.  In addition, The FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn is quoted as saying “I am increasingly concerned about hand sanitizer being packaged to appear to be consumable products, such as baby food or beverages. These products could confuse consumers into accidentally ingesting a potentially deadly product. It’s dangerous to add scents with food flavors to hand sanitizers which children could think smells like food, eat and get alcohol poisoning.

Greetings Saxon families,

What a week it has been. Our instructional materials distribution has gone tremendously well. Staff has thoroughly enjoyed seeing students as they dropped in to pick up their items. It has been wonderful to hear the sound of children in the building once again. I would like to extend a huge thank you to our incredible teachers, instructional assistants, administrative assistants and administrators who have come in to help with the event.

Congratulations to the following seniors who have been named 2021 National Merit Program Semifinalists.

We are so very proud of you!

Keep Your Laptop Healthy

Never leave laptops plugged in and unsupervised for long periods of time, like overnight.  It is best to always use laptops on surfaces that allow for proper ventilation like a desk or table. Prolonged charging and limited ventilation can damage the battery, the operating systems and cause the machine to shut down completely.

Additional Tips:

  • Shut down the laptop every day after use
  • Use and store the laptop in an area that is free from dust, extreme heat, cold, or humidity
  • Restart the laptop several times per week.

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 2 months 2 weeks ago

Greetings Saxon families,

I hope this communication finds each of you well. Our school year has gotten off to a tremendous start. During this week, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of classrooms and have been delighted with the high level of student engagement. Our students and teachers are to be commended for their efforts.

As the year is now underway, below is information you may find useful.

Mondays

Teacher Office Hours - 8:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.

Students will access teachers through course links provided in Schoology. Students may access teachers for assistance. If a student is struggling academically, the teacher may require him/her to meet during office hours.

Students should complete asynchronous assignments. Weekly assignments are located within teachers’ course Schoology sites in folders labeled either Weekly Assignments or Unit Assignments.

Asynchronous Assignments

As shared during town halls and Friday 45 meetings held in August, students in standard level and honors courses will be assigned a maximum of 60 minutes of asynchronous work per week. For advanced level courses, the maximum amount of time needed for a typical student to complete asynchronous assignments should be no more than 75 minutes. It is expected that the bulk of assignments be assigned so they may be completed on Mondays.

Back to School Night

Our Back to School Night event will be held virtually. Schoolwide recordings will be sent on Monday, September 21 at 6 p.m. The communication will also provide directions for accessing student courses.

9/11

On this somber day, we took time in Saxon Country to remember the victims of the attacks. Below is the information shared with students at the start of the school day. The video may be accessed here.

 

Thank you all for your ongoing support and partnership.

Wishing you wellness,

Kimberly Greer
